Omar Blue - Best Halloween Party Ever - 2016

Omar caught me off guard this year. I knew he had something on his mind because I can always tell and he was being an extra good boy.

He finally asked if he could have his Halloween Party this year. Weakling that I am, and  having such fun memories of last year, I said yes. He didn’t mention that the party was going to be here at home, instead of at K-9 Town. He only told me that I didn’t have to worry about anything, not even the snacks.

That was all I needed to hear. 

You may remember Zilly Boo from last year’s party. She was the party Greeter this year. I knew she has a drinking problem and she wasn’t able to hide the bottle before I saw it.  Luckily, she didn’t have a chance to get toasted before I took it.

She didn’t really care because she was happy that Omar let her be Greeter and she had some of her spider friends keeping her company while she hung around.

I decided I was going to find a spot and enjoy the party. I even put on some music for them (or me, hehe.)  I’d have some of Zilly Boos ghost wine. I had some last year and it was excellent and appropriate for the occasion.

I couldn’t believe my eyes when I went into the kitchen for the first time since much earlier. Omar’s good friend, Monet had taken over my kitchen and had already laid out the first batch of snacks. She said her Mom Gina Austin taught her how to make snacks.
Everything was neat and under control, she wanted the kitchen to herself, so I took Zilly’s bottle into the party. Omar introduced me to some of his friends that I hadn’t met.

Look at this little one. This is Heidi Witt from the Swiss Alps by way of Virginia. She said this was her first ever Halloween Party and she was having a real good time.
That was even before this handsome little pirate came ashore. He didn’t take his eye off of Heidi the whole night. She finally gave in and talked to him, but I don’t think his sweetness moved her. We all know the song, “Girls just wanna have fun.” They were so cute.
All of a sudden there was a commotion at the door. I could hear Zilly Boo yelling, “You can go in but there will be no politics at this party!"
I knew who it was without going to the door. That was Omar’s job anyway. It was Donald and Hillary by way of Lab Rescue, LRCP, the  wonderful Lab rescue organization.  Both agreed that they were just here to have fun at Omar’s Halloween Party. They needed to get away from the daily grind of politicking.  
Omar’s friends just kept coming. Some of the witches wore their best hats, like Witch Lexi Mattia here, and her friend Witch Lali below. They took up so much room that we decided to go outside.

That’s when Omar gave all of us his big surprise!
Tree Monsters from the outskirts of K-9 Town were outside waiting. They were wearing their scariest expressions and movements. Not only that but up the hill behind them, though we could hardly see them, were some of his pack, ready to escort the party goers to the next part of the Halloween Party.
The excitement was overwhelming once Omar let everyone know this was all a part of the plan and the big dogs found out the Tree Monsters didn’t mean them any harm. Needless to say they were all ready to go to K-9 Town.
I was running back inside to get my camera when Omar stopped me to say that I couldn’t go. I had a feeling that was the case anyway but thought if I moved fast maybe I could slip by. I didn’t make it.
They left not long after. To my surprise Zilly Boo wanted to stay with me, then I realized she was only staying to finish off her wine, but that was okay, she didn’t have to drive. We chatted for a long while, and she left to find some of her skeleton friends at another Halloween Party.
When I was alone, I thought about all that had happened and how much fun I had, knowing that Omar would be ready to tell me about the rest of the night when he returned.
I looked forward to it, as I dosed off, quite content.
